The HEXIE BOM: June!
How about a sweet flower for June? Our yard is full of all kinds of blooms. Look closely and you'll see a cute ladybug in the center of my flower. When I was growing up I loved ladybugs. I named them all "Susan." Who knows why?
What color will your flower be? I added some purple to mine, mainly because I thought my quilt needed a bit of purple!
As I hinted last week, I've been working on my sashing. I'm using half square triangle units that measure 3 1/2" square (finish at 3"). So now HALF my quilt top is done!
Not a great picture, but you get the idea. Now is a great time to decide on your sashing! There's nothing worse than ending a year with a stack of blocks that sit around your sewing room for months. If you do a bit a sashing as you go along, at the end of the year you'll have a finished quilt top, not just some blocks. So get busy! And share what you're doing!
Other sashing ideas:
-3 1/2" squares
-3 1/2" x 15 1/2" strips with 3 1/2" squares for the cornerstones.
-Flying geese, anyone?
Can't wait to see these quilts come together!
